Adaptability in Design

Small backyard enhancements to commercial & estate master planning

The Ceres design team brings an extraordinary level of design thinking to every project, large or small. (Background is a side by side of an enhancement bird’s eye, and a Landscape Architecture bird’s eye)

Let’s establish your vision for a new build or create ways to rejuvenate a mature landscape.


Landscapes come in as many shapes and sizes as the people that love them.  At Ceres we believe in attending to the needs of the client by bringing a high level of design thinking and technical expertise to every size project we encounter.  Enhancement design attends to smaller scale projects and renovation that don’t require the level of engineering required in a full-scale landscape architecture plan.  Enhancement projects can be: 

Reimagining the gardens at the front entry to your house

Rejuvenating planting beds that are overgrown

Improving your curb appeal

Rethinking your small backyard garden. 

Our enhancement design process starts with deep listening.  At our initial consultation, we’ll listen to your needs and the needs of the site.  Then we’ll craft a plan, with a hand drawn sketch or digital bird’s eye to covey a design that matches your budget. 

Enhancements breathe life new life into old spaces.  They find ways to enliven unused corners.  They reconnect you to your space so you can love what’s outside.


We listen to your needs and work with you to create the perfect outdoor experience for your lifestyle.  Our expert landscape architects and designers turn difficult terrain into artistic design opportunities.  We use a strong understanding of grading and drainage to plan and install landscape designs our clients will use for years to come.

Our comprehensive landscape architecture process follows our clients from initial consultation through conceptual design, design development, creation of AutoCad construction documents, and through administration and supervision of the build.  Projects that require landscape architecture services can involve:

Large scale residential landscape design

Patio, fire pit, water feature & spa design 

Engineered wall and driveway design

Community Master Planning

Municipal Park design


Backyard enhancements to Commercial & Estate master planning.


Confidence & capability built from 40 years of high country landscape construction.


Protecting your investment, stewarding your garden into the future.
